in america will see their taxes automatically go up at the beginning of next year. >> sean: before president, if you don't lead, continue to do nothing, america's debt could continue to rise and we could easily hit $20 trillion in the coming years. i doubt very much that you need to be reminded that $6 trillion of that debt was tacked on under your watch, which is why your hypocrisy on the issue is downright laughable. here's what you, president obama, what you said about your predecessor. >> the way bush has done the last eight years, take out a credit card from the bank of china, in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents, number 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so we now have over $9 trillion of debt we have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that's irresponsible. that's unpatriotic. >> sean: $4 trillion, his lonesome? you've given us $6 trillion. by the way, that $4 trillion was in eight years, not four. unpatriotic? that was when the debt was only $9 trillion. nowadays we're looking at $16.3 trillion. tha

not starting from scratch. i worked very closely with america's cup. the people's plan was a product of a lot of community input and a lot of those concerns and issues came right out of the same area of the waterfront we're talking about now. because that was so recently gathered, that input, that became a great foundation for us to say, hey, if you've already spent some of those 260 meetings we had in the last two years in the america's cup, your thoughts, your comments weren't wasted on us. we recorded them, actually color-coded them to make sure i took track of what we heard in the beginning of 2010, what we heard in 2011, what we heard in 2012. these are actually online. hosted by wed's website. there are pages and pages of community input about transit, about pedestrian safety, about accessibility, about employers worried about their employees getting to work. and we also wanted to make sure that we had comments resolved in time because we had a great experience with the america's cup. and ware going to have more experiences with the america's cup. last year was the first test of what is

. (laughter) sometimes he flies over canada on his way to america from the north pole and occasionally he'll stop at a tim horton's so his reindeer can use the bathroom. (laughter) word to the wise: don't go in after donner, okay? (laughter) there's a reason his name is german for "thunder." (laughter) but he doesn't stop in canada. i mean, think about it. a flying bearded man delivering toys all over the world in a single night? that doesn't make any sense. he only has time to do it in one country. so obviously he's going with america. (cheers and applause) why do you think people come from all over the world to live here? our health care? no. (laughter) we have santa. so don't worry, canadian kids, you still have a santa, it's just a canadian santa. every year i believe it rotates to a different canadian celebrity. last year it was nelly furtado-claus. this year it's rush. so that jingle you hear on the roof is just neil peart breaking into a 45 minute high hat solo. (laughter) now, folks, it is the christmas season and the fact that canada doesn't get one brings us all joy. (laughter)
the way to live your destiny in america today. instead of living frugally, going to work, saving money, not spending everything you make. i mean, these are values that this country was built on as opposed to this idea that i'm going to gamble my way into wealth. which really, statistically, doesn't happen. >> okay, dave, stay where you are, we'll come back and talk more about this in detail. and obviously the fiscal cliff. we'll talk to two men on opposite sides of this, the executive director of stop gambling. i'm going to start with you, terry rich, you obviously run one of the big lotteries in america. you obviously heard what dave said, they don't like it, a tax on the poor, and really it should just be cancelled. >> you know, as he said that, i would just add one word, it is opti optional revenue, people don't have to play. and as lotteries work across the country under great leadership of the governor and legislature, who wouldn't allow, as you say, preying on the poor, it is important that we continue to talk about the lottery. that it is not an investment. i absolutely agree wi
and bicycle and especially with the america's cup experience on transit. >> my question, then -- another question on the giants stadium, when you looked at the cost in terms of the transit investments that we had to make, some increased demand in the neighborhood, do you feel like we were able to adequately calculate those costs and how with the warriors arena do we plan to estimate from that? and if the impact fee is in the rider ship, what you pay when you get on mound and i cover that, what are some ideas that we may have to explore? >> we do have a lot of great information from the america's cup. i can tell you not just muni, because there is so much more [speaker not understood]. they provided what their cost was to the augmented service. america's cup, one thing we wanted to do was deal with the perception if there was a major event on one part of town draining other parts of town from resources. we developed the people plan to float the high level of transit above the baseline so you could see the ongoing service in every neighborhood isn't really affected by the great demand in t
our forefathers risked their lives to bring this bible to the shores of america. because it contained the principals for economic liberty, political liberty and religious freedom. the 1599 geneva bible. it was the first complete english translation, complete with chapters, numbered verses and 300,000 utterly unique study notes. it actually came out before the king james version and because the government didn't authorize it, it was outlawed. but it was a bible by the people, for the people, the book that built america. and now for the first time in 400 years it's available again in a beautiful leather edition. i have one, i want you to have yours too. please visit genevabible.com and get your copy of this rare and historic version of god's word today. thank you and may god bless you. >> it is quarter past the hour. here is a look at headlines this morning. >> a lawsuit has been filed after four wounded warriors were killed during a parade in their honor. in the state of texas is train crashing into a truck that was carrying the veterans. now two of those army veterans and their wives

: "america live" starts right now. megyn: thanks, guys. fox news alert, new signs that negotiations may be breaking down in washington's effort to head off a series of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts that will hit americans hard in the new year unless something is done to stop it. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. treasury secretary timothy geithner headed to capitol hill today, in fact, he's still there, meeting with congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle. but after his sit-down with the speaker of the house, john boehner, mr. speaker boehner came out and told reporter that is the treasury secretary offered no new substantive plan and would not address the issue of spending cuts at all. as we reported on this show yesterday, it is no longer clear that the white house even wants spending cuts in this initial deal. it wants solely tax hikes, or at least that's all that it's been talking about x that now -- that dichotomy -- is becoming a big issue. here's the speaker. >> two weeks ago we had a very productive conversation at the white house. but based
prosperity for america, helps reduce our budget deficit, is humane, is enforceable, no one said it would be easy but that's what the people send us hoar to do and regardless of the outcome of this particular bill, we are simply taking another week in avoiding addressing the real issues of the imdepration crisis in this country. i encourage my colleagues to vote against the rule which was a closed process and doesn't allow for consideration of even noncontroversial amendments such as my ev-5 amendment. and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from florida. mr. nugent: mr. speaker, and to my good friend from colorado, we agree on so many issues. particularly as it relates to immigration reform. we agree. i think this is the first step in regards to where we need to go. you have sold a very persuasive argument in regards to why it is so important so important that we have a stem vee is program. -- visa program. while it's important to us to keep that brainpower we educated in the united states, keep them here in this country

was about having a balanced plan that addressed america's fiscal challenges. acknowledged there were serious fiscal challenges that we do need long-term, deficit reduction. that's important for america's credibility, and it's important for america's economy and economic growth. that plan has to be balanced and that means significant revenues, and it has to go around. typically that means the wealthy and well off have to pay their fair share as well. again, these are not new issues. they are ones that were debated. they came up in every debate. even foreign policy debate. and so we think that the american people are on the side of the president and democrats. that is not to say -- [inaudible] we want to remind everyone that there's already been a trillion dollars, over a trillion dollars in spending cuts. and so that is a significant part of this debate, because it happened last year. but just because washington has a short memory doesn't mean we all should have one. and that there's already been sacrifice on behalf of through those discretionary cuts. we are particularly excited doing a lot

latest on "good morning america." >> sorry for the rest of you folks out there. >> i know. >>> now, to the pineapple express. a string of nasty storms barreling into the west coast. >> the first round of drenching rain and powerful winds already blew in yesterday. and more of the same is on the way today, through sunday. forecasters say it's like opening up a giant fire hose nearly 400 miles wide. that means they're in for a soggy mess from san francisco up to seattle. >> named the pineapple express because it originates in hawaii and moves towards the west coast. for more on the impact and the back-to-back rainmakers, we turn to accuweather.com and jim dickey. >> another round of soaking rainfall on tap for today in across california. there's an upper-level low pressure spinning in. that's drawing in tropical moisture here. san francisco, through portland. into the seattle area. along with strong, gusty winds. gusts along the coast. in some cases, 60-mile-per-hour to 80-mile-per-hour. inland, 40-mile-per-hour to 60-mile-per-hour, could bring down trees and power lines. rob and pau
. this president, more than any other president and candidate in america history, maybe more than any other candidate in any country in history has built up a complex, comprehensive, robust, working system for finding his supporters, figuring out how best to contact them and then mobilizing them on his behalf, more than anybody else in history. the data-driven, high-tech system of contact with voters that the obama campaign built up is how this president earned both his terms in the white house. so on the one hand, what the president is doing right here is sort of old news. presidents asking the public to bring the campaign beyond the election, to get their sfoerters involved in achieving the policy they want. on the one hand, presidents do that. this has been done before. this president in particular has done it a lot. on the other hand, after this re-election campaign, this may be tote little uncharted territory. nobody has ever had the kind of high-tech, robust connection to the individual human americans who voted for them that this president has. technology has afforded this president

's a little thing to think about that. if you could get everybody in america to pay you one penny a day. at the end of the year you'd have $1.1 billion. if you can get a dime you're going to have $11 billion at the end of the year. if you can get a dollar you can have over $100 billion. >> reporter: this is finally how we're going to be able to support the "newshour," we'll get each of you to send a penny and... >> but that's the trick, you've got figure out how to get everybody to give you that penny and the best way to do it is if you're already billing them, you find ways to stick in all these extra little charges. >> reporter: it didn't always used to be this way. here, for example is a scranton, pennsylvania electric bill from 1937, back when public utilities were strictly regulated. >> it's a very simple bill, it's not even a full page of paper, and it has the account number, the dates that are covered, the meter reading, this person used three kilowatts per hour of electricity, and the price written down here at the bottom. >> reporter: today's bill, by contrast-- this one from p

in america, with patricia williams, michelle alexander, and eugene jarecki. >> i think it is possible to change people's minds about the war on drugs without making it a race issue. in fact, you know, every poll that's been done shows that white americans in particular don't want to hear about race or racial bias or the racial dimension of any issue, let alone mass incarceration on the war on drugs. but i believe we would be making a huge mistake if we were to pursue drug policy reform without talking about the racial dimension of this crisis. because if we do, if we go about our advocacy in a color-blind way and talk just about cost savings and dollars and cents, and the benefits of drug treatment, never address the racial dimention, we will fail to learn the critical sson that this moment in our history has to teach us. marion cotillard, andrew solomon, and a look at incarceration when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. rose: marion cotillard is here. she came to fame with her oscar-winning performance in
know that a significant portion of america, 60%, said they agree with raising taxes on the rich. even some romney voters said hey, yeah, we should raise taxes on the rich. it seems there's a passionate fwrup of far right conservatives who are saying we don't want to raise taxes on the rich. and they seem to have an outsized amount of power in this discussion. because they are against compromise. they are super passionate. they will primary people who go against them and vote them out of office. is it that we have this passionate small minority that is kind of holding the whole process hostage to use a word from last term? >> i'm not sure it's a passionate small minority. i mean, it's the majority of the party. it's a core principle for the gop. it's one of the -- really one of the few core principles in kind of the post-cold war and post social issues kind of part of politics right now that brings them all together. it's very important for them to not have high taxes. what we're seeing right now is sort of, i think, and it's been a conjecture, but the orthodoxy on taxes which is very
get america back on a sound economic footing? butting your hats on, if you were in the room, what would the deal be? >> here is where i think this has to end up. one, recognize what we are facing is a spending problem. my friend steve talks about spending in the balanced budgets of the clinton years. the spending since the clinton years has increased 50%. it is really out-of-control. and the reason it is out-of-control is because of entitlements. the budget is all of the government's expenditures, it is 60% entitlement. so big picture. there has to be a solution around entitlements on revenues again. what i would like to see is i'd like to see the bush tax rates continue as they are. however, give the process, the country, north of $1 trillion but do it by getting rid of the loop holes that comprise 70,000 pages of the tax code. these are the kinds of plans that are being offered. and less impaired growth. >> if you were in that room and that was on the table what would you say? >> i would say you need to have a compromise. spending is a problem. but as i said before. we had two r

and grandparents of almost every member of congress. in this case, half of the people who come to america legally through the diversity visa program come from the continent of africa, over half of them. but they come from all over. so the republicans would have us say to the good people of ghana or south africa, but also to the people of sweden, and ireland, and new zealand, and taiwan who applied to come here legally, sorry we have to withdraw the chance you had so we can convert them to maybe 20,000 stem graduates. maybe. once again republicans' math doesn't add up. here's something i bet you didn't know about the visa diversity program. many come to this country and join the armed forces of the united states of america. but these legal immigrants are the target of the republican bill. i have news for my friends on the other side of the aisle. you can't fool immigrants. you can't pretend to be pro-immigrant and eliminate immigration for one group to allow another group to come. i woke up the day after the election. i saw a new landscape for the immigration debate. it is one where democrats and
tax laws. the world has changed a lot in that time period and yet america has not kept up. the underlying assumptions in our tax code are frankly out of step with the complexities of today's global economy. this is especially evident in our corporate tax code. on the domestic side of our corporate tax code, the u.s. has become the highest tax rate country among all the developed countries in the world. so canada just lowered their rate from 16.5% to 15%. our rate is 39.2% when you combine the state and federal burden. federal burden 35%. state burden closer to 5%, 6%. so right now, the average among all the developed countries in the world is 25%, and the u.s. rate again stands at 39.2% when you combine state and federal. a similar trend is played out with respect to international tax rules because our trading partners including japan and britain have moved to a more competitive territorial like tax regime over the last ten years which encourages the movement of investment capital jobs overseas. so there is a simple point here which is by standing still the united states i

of the house of representatives and take our oath to the constitution of the united states of america and still most republicans will take their oath to grover norquist and that's the fundamental difference between us. >> here is senator lindsey graham of south carolina on norquist. here it is. >> i agree with grover we shouldn't raise rates but i think grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions and buy down debt. i want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs. i will violate the pledge long story short, for the good of the country only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> does this mean you have to put medicaid, medicare on the table to get these folks to think your way. graham isn't going far enough. congressman tom cole, another republican, is willing to see what people wants. is this starting to crack? are we seeing a trend? >> democrats have passed the budget control act which cut spending by nearly $1 billion. with he were willing to support a compromise that would further reduce spending in exchange for revenues from the rich. we have already agreed to compromi
the republican party. we have to embrace the entire fabric of america. if you were to look at the house republicans as a math, there aren't a lot of options there. there aren't a whole lot of women, a whole lot of people of color to choose from. it's important to note there have been big gains in leadership rogers, wag nurse of missouri. in the way of an election, you saw very big divide between the people who had supported the president's reelection and mitt romney. >> for sure. we often wonder why legislation like, you know, the violence against women act or other important legislation the people really like, wonder why it's stalled. from your experience, do you think it's credible to conclude that the lack of die seriousty among committee chairs contributes to grid lock. >> there's no question especially looking at the republican side of the aisle. there is a gender gap. there is quite a bit of grid lock in washington. speaking specifically about the violence against women act something i would argue with any issue like this is an issue that deals with domestic violence, rape, sexual
statement on the lunch saying the focus of their discussion was on america's leadership in the world and the importance of maintaining that leadership position in the future. this kind of postelection bipartisanship is nothing new. four years ago it was then-president-elect obama and john mccain. >> i think that's a -- sends a great message to the american people. these two men were involved in a very bitter election for to be president of the united states. i think it speaks well of both of them to sit down and have lunch. >> reporter: earlier in the day the former gop nominee met with his former running mate paul ryan where an aide to the congressman said he had a constructive and positive conversation with mitt romney this morning. in addition to sharing updates from their families and reflections from the campaign, their forward looking conversation focused on resolving the critical fiscal and economic challenges ahead. translation, fiscal cliff. it's a challenge romney might have faced had he won. but as one of his strategists said on cbs, mistakes were made. >> i think we shoul
-- it was a great meeting. folks are back after thanksgiving. we wish everyone in america a great thanksgiving. it was tough for some folks from hurricane sandy, but we hope every single american in this country found a way to be able to celebrate thanksgiving with family and friends and lovedwe had a group of members, including new members, who were very excited and optimistic. the chairman said we leave the room truly believing that we can get this work done before december 31. we leave the room today believing there is no reason why we cannot get that done. just a couple points -- a bit of context. four years ago, if he checked the records, you will find four years ago in the month of november america bled 790,000 jobs. 790,000 americans lost their jobs four years ago. last month, the jobs report -- 180,000 new jobs created in this country. not as many as we want, but we're not losing jobs. we're certainly not hemorrhaging hundreds of thousands of jobs that we were four years ago. we are on the move, making progress, but as the president keeps and, we have to do more. this is not the time t
what republicans are willing to do. we'll be right back with "america's newsroom." -p martha: treasury secretary tim geithner is set to meet with party leaders in less than one hour from now. negotiations continue today on this looming fiscal cliff issue that is extremely important to get solved. republicans say they are willing to put new revenues on the table but only in exchange for real entitlement reform but democrats say that can't come until way down the road. several conservatives say the gop already lost the battle on the budget. charles krauthamer though says there is still a major card that republicans have to play in this battle against the president. here's charles krauthamer. >> he is a lame duck. he wants a successful second term. if it starts by going over the cliff, it starts with a second recession. two million unemployed and they wreck the second term. that is the leverage that republicans have over obama and they ought to use it and not cave in the face of a demand that i think is utterly unacceptable. martha: hmmm, very interesting last night pro "special report".
